Taneicia

The Democratic Republic of Taneicia is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 116 million Taneicians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 19.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Taneician economy, worth 5.94 trillion francs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 51,172 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

You need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and group hugs break out during floor votes. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force. Taneicia's national animal is the lamb, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Taneicia is ranked 133,306th in the world and 32nd in Nostromo for Highest Drug Use, scoring 23 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
